Well, I ended up being the high bidder for this car last Saturday. Or actually I was the Best Offer winner of this FL Convert on Ebay. I have always wanted to pick up anothre 50's Mopar Convert and it happened! I am planning to head out Labor Day weekend to pick this one up in LaCrosse, WI, Originally an SoCal car in Coral and White, (I will return it to these colors) The interior is done already just a little floor patching and an media blasing an we should be able to get it in paint by next Spring. Pictures show the current state of it and another picture of an sister car of what it will look like when done.

Also, Picked up in the last month was Teresa Phillips 57 Chrysler Windsor Town & Country Wagon that I have been looking at for over 3 years to get. I pulled the trigger on this one not knowing that I would buy the 57 Dodge CRL Convert but we should all have this problem of having to many FL vehicles! Need to do floors in this Pink beauty! And upgrade the Powerplant to an 354 Hemi spec's from the Poly Head version it is now.

<p>also picked up in the last month is this 57 Chrysler wagon from Teresa Phillips. It has Fred Flintstone floors in it but will get that fixed shortly, or at least in the next two months will weld in a new floor into it.</p><p> </p><p>John Q.</p>

Congrats on both cars. The T&C wagon must be very rare.

I thought the 57 Chrysler poly was a 392 but I was wrong = 354. Have fun!

Neat brochure! Yep, you can get the 354 in a two barrel, 4 barrel in the Poly head or the Hemi headed dual quad from what I can gather... But still learning all the Nuances of this power plant and its options.

Brought the 57 Dodge CRL convert back home to Colorado last weekend after an Marathon road trip starting Thursday at 6:30PM 2 1/2 day blitz thru Wyoming to Bismark, ND (parts pick-up Friday AM at 6:30) and then to Minneapolis (two parts pick-up locations) and then to LaCrosse, WI were Gary Johnson and I overnighted after rolling into town at 10 PM on Friday, Saturday morning saw us picking up the CRL Convert up at the storage facility it was at and then on the road again south to Iowa (one parts pick-up there) and finally on I-80 for the trip home to Denver. We got into Arvada at 3:30 AM Sunday morning. Things we do for a car and car parts.

The Dodge CRL Convert is still in my trailer out of the elements till space in the garage clears up in a week or two.

What in the Sam Hill is that '57 doing in my mobile storage unit?!? 

Glad the trip was a success and you are home safe and sound.  The '57 looks great!  Is it just as you expected? better? worse?

It is exactly what I thought it would be! Milt and Paul were great to work with on this deal. And thanks to Gary Johnson for going with me on this whirlwind trip to fetch it. Glad to have it home and hope to get it out of "Mikes Mobile Storage' space sooner then later. What to get her stripped down a bit more for blasting...
